Answers To Frequently Asked Questions
What is a URL?
A URL, which stands for Uniform Resource Locator, is your complete Internet address. It is the string of information, such as http://www.micronet-ohio.com, that directs people to specific locations on the Internet. In the same way that an address written on an envelope directs the post-office to deliver a letter straight to your door, a URL typed into an Internet browser leads directly to the location of a specific resource on the Internet.
What is a domain name?
A domain name tells people (and the computers they use) how to find your homepage on the Internet. Each domain name is assigned to a numerical IP (Internet Protocol) address by your host provider. Since people remember names better than numbers, the domain name translates this number into words. For example, someone's IP address might be 126.96.36.199. The domain name is a lot easier to remember.
Who should register a domain name?
Anyone who wants to establish a presence on the Internet or wants to secure the name for future use or resale.
Who owns the domain name?
The owner of the domain name is the registrant information entered into our database at the time of the original registration.
How do I change my domain name after it has been registered?
Once a domain name is registered, it is unchangeable and not refundable.
Once I have a domain name secured, how long may I use it?
If there are no trademark disputes, your secured domain name will be yours for as long as you maintain the yearly registration fees.
I don't have a Web site, can I still register a domain name?
Yes. You can register a domain name at any time and start your online identity by using our name servers until you have access to name servers of your own. The free use of our name servers will point your domain to our "Future Home" page until you return to your account and specify otherwise
What if the domain name I want isn't available?
If you search for the availability of a name on netsol and it is not available, it
means that someone else has already registered that domain name. We can
only register domain names that are available
Once I have registered a domain name what do I do?
The first thing you are going to have to do is to find a web host. Which we are. We offer very inexpensive, reliable and feature packed web hosting packages. Next upload your html pages to us if you have any.
Finally wait up to 72 hours for all this updating to circulate throughout the
Internet. You should now be able to receive e-mail and page hits.
What characters and length can I use for my domain name?
Only a few rules must be followed when registering your domain name: - At
MicronetOhio you can have a name that is 63 characters long not including the extension. Therefore the root of the word can be 63 characters. - Use only letters, numbers, or dash ("-") - Cannot begin or end with a dash - Domain names are not case sensitive - Domain names cannot include spaces
What credit cards do you accept?
At this time we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We have also found that debit cards that have the Visa and MasterCard logos on their front work as well.
Why do I need to register a domain name?
Most Internet providers offer you a directory on their own domain. Most of the time, they look like this: http://www.domain.com/~yourname. In addition to having to explain the little squiggle mark (~ which is called a tilde) to your less net savvy customers, this can prove cumbersome on business cards and letterhead, and it does not reflect the unique nature of your business or homepage.
Registering a domain name for your business or organization is essential to your marketing efforts. A domain name gives your business a unique identity on the World-Wide Web.
What do .com, net, and .org stand for in an Internet address?
These three extensions .com, net and .org are top-level domain names in the hierarchical Domain Name System. They are probably the most popular and most widely recognized top-level domain names on the Internet. With MicronetOhio, Inc., you can register any valid, available domain name you choose within these three top-level domain names.
All top-level domains and the guidelines by which they function were created 20-25 years ago. Every country was granted one top-level domain with the exception of the US which was also given the .com, Net, org, .edu, and .mil top-level domains. While .com is the most popular extension, every top-level domain has the ability to work in exactly the same way. The true difference between .com and other top-level domains is purely marketing and exposure.
Are .com, .net and .org my only choices when registering a domain name?
MicronetOhio, Inc. currently registers domain names ending in .com, .net, .org along with the newly added .biz and .tld tld's. As other extensions become more widely used on the Internet, we will offer those to our customers as well. We'll keep you posted through updates on our home page.
I thought I could only register domains through Networksolutions?
NSI has been deregulated and domain registration is now open to other registrars as well.
How do I choose a good domain name?
Choose a name that reflects the intent and purpose of your web site or business. Try to keep it short and snappy, and say it out loud, as if you were telling someone at a party to visit your web page. Some domain names look good on paper, but are confusing when you try to send someone to them over the phone. Keep in mind the image that it conjures... your domain name will be one of the ways people recognize or evaluate their sites for their interests when they are searching via Yahoo or the other search engines. When facing a large number of choices, the snappiest domain sometimes grabs the most attention.
Do I need to register the .net, .org, .info or .biz domain if I have already registered the .com domain?
The expense of registering and supporting a domain name is minor compared to the expense of marketing your domain name and your business. The last thing you want is for someone else (usually your competitors) to benefit from your efforts to establish your identity. You will see competitors registering names close to yours, trying to benefit from typos your visitors may make. For example, someone registered internik.net to try and benefit from typos by visitors to reputable internic.net
What is the difference between a domain registered through your service and one
registered through Network Solutions?
We are cheaper
What type of payments do you accept?
We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover cards. If you would like to pay via another method please contact support.
Why do you charge so much less then the others?
We are able to provide our customers with amazing domain name registration prices due to the deregulation of NSI. The cost of a domain name has gone down tremendously in price. Unlike other registrars, we are passing on our better price to our customers.
What if my desired name is the same as a trademarked name?
Generally, if you've registered the name in good faith, it's not a name belonging to an internationally known company, and you can show that you have a legitimate reason to use that name then you are likely to be able to keep that name. That may not be the case if it can be shown that you purchased the name for the express purpose of re-selling it to a company with a legitimate claim to the name.
A trademark can be a word, phrase, graphic image or other symbol used to represent a product, service or organization. To be recognized as a trademark, the word, phrase, graphic image, or symbol must be registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or, in the case of other countries, with the appropriate authority for that country. We cannot advise you on whether or not the domain you register will be infringing on an existing trademark. If you have concerns about trademark issues, you may wish to consult a trademark lawyer or search the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office database. You can also research recent industry articles on pending domain and trademark issues online using one of the major Search Engines.
